Many husbands are still under the dated impression that women are not sexual beings, and the sexual relationship in a marriage is predominantly for their benefit. How wrong they are! Women don’t just want sex; they need sex. And when it’s not on the menu, more and more women are becoming comfortable with the idea of looking elsewhere.

Married dating website IllicitEncounters.com has found that just over a third of unfaithful spouses “can’t remember” when they last had sex with their partner, and over 50% of adulteresses say the World Cup has put a halt to their marital sex life.
The website, which is currently ranked as the most popular married dating site in the UK, quizzed 1,200 members on their marital bed habits. 32% declared that the last time they were intimate with their partner was so long ago, they couldn’t recall the date.
In addition, it appears the World Cup is affecting the sex lives of British wives; when asked whether the recent football mania had affected sex at home, 52% said they had been initmate with their partner less since kick-off two weeks ago.
Sadly, for many, infrequency of marital sex is not a new thing. The second most common answer for both men and women when asked when they last slept with their partner was ‘Within the last 6 months’, and 12% of respondents admitted they hadn’t had sex with their wife or husband for over a year.
Women in particular seem to be getting the raw end of the deal; over half female members questioned said they had not slept with their husband in the last 6 months.
Mary, 38, from Glasgow, has been using IllicitEncounters.com for 3 years. “When I joined IE, I hadn’t had sex with my husband for 8 months. The frustration was suffocating but strangely, he seemed almost apathetic about our sex life. After years of desperately trying to ‘spice things up’, I took what I thought was my only way out. IE has released the pressure valve inside me. My husband and I have sporadic intimacy, but sporting events like the World Cup certainly don’t help; he is often out, and pays me no attention at home whatsoever. Luckily, my lover hates football!”.
Sara Hartley, representative from the site, explains that Mary’s situation is all too common; “Many husbands are still under the dated impression that women are not sexual beings, and the sexual relationship in a marriage is predominantly for their benefit. How wrong they are! Women don’t just want sex; they need sex. And when it’s not on the menu, more and more women are becoming comfortable with the idea of looking elsewhere.”
IllicitEncounters.com launched in 2003, and recently released a study of comparative attitudes to adultery in France and Britain. Figures and bespoke information on the study is available from the Illicit Encounters Press Office.
